Shailene Woodley has been cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The actress’ character Mary Jane Watson — a love interest for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) — was moved to the franchise’s third movie so that the sequel currently in production can focus on Parker’s relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).

“I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship,” said director Marc Webb in a statement. “Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her.”

The third movie is scheduled for a 2016 release — and it’s not clear whether Woodley will return for the Watson role.
